It seems a lot of people have trouble with MongoDB. My particular issue right now is that I can’t get the container to stay up so that my NodeJS app can connect to it. I have tried specifying the ports as in the posts below, and I get “extraneous key not permitted.” Even without them, I get
Build was cancelled. I have not tried removing the MONGO_INITDB_ environment variables because, well, that’s how my solution is set up, and I feel like any tool that supports MongoDB should support basic Mongo configuration.
There are zero mongo examples in the documentation. Which leads me to my question; is it really supported? It seems like I either have to change my solution’s security model to accommodate very limited functionality, or pick a new database. I’m fine with the second one; not so enthusiastic about the first. Can I bring my own MongoDB container (mongo:4.2.5-bionic) without running into these restrictions? Does Postgres work out of the box? Maybe I’ll head that direction.

Every time I start the app, it can’t connect to the mongo container.
